The End of an Era
The highly acclaimed Arrowverse show, The Flash, is set to conclude on May 24, 2023, with the premiere of episode 13 of the ninth and final season. Fans can expect an epic conclusion to the show, with the return of a familiar face – Tom Cavanagh, who played the notorious villain, Reverse Flash.
A Return to the Beginning
In a recent interview with Entertainment Weekly, the showrunner Eric Wallace confirmed Cavanagh’s return: “This is Barry Allen’s final race, so you can’t tell that story without including his most infamous adversary: The Reverse-Flash.” Wallace also praised Cavanagh’s portrayal of Eobard Thawne, saying “Tom’s exciting portrayal of Eobard Thawne has been unforgettable for nine years, and fans will be delighted to know that he’s brought that same wonderful intensity to our finale, too.”
Cavanagh played several characters throughout the show’s nine seasons, including various versions of Dr. Harrison Wells. However, his performance as the Reverse-Flash in the first season was considered one of the show’s best story arcs.
What to Expect from The Flash Final Episode
The CW released the official synopsis of The Flash finale, stating that “The Flash, the fastest man alive, is tasked with his greatest challenge yet, to save the timeline and save existence. Friends old and new gather for an epic battle to save Central City, one last time.”
The synopsis gives little away, as the show’s creators want to keep the audience guessing. However, fans can expect to see other special appearances and Easter Eggs related to the show’s mythology. Some actors who have been part of the show have already returned for the last season, including Stephen Amell, who reprised his role as Oliver Queen/Green Arrow on episode nine.
The End of The Flash Era
The final season of The Flash will be divided into four parts, with the first already broadcasted on May 3. With only three episodes remaining, fans can expect a thrilling end to the Scarlet Speedster’s career, at least on television.
On the big screen, fans will see Ezra Miller’s version of Barry Allen in June, when The Flash movie hits theaters, rebooting the DC universe to welcome James Gunn’s vision of the franchise.
